Wow somehow I completely missed this release! There are several fixes in there that I've been dying for (in particular an updated AeXNSCabInstaller.exe so that I can push the NS ActiveX controls to non-admin Win7 workstations)!  And the Package Server issues I think we've also been experiencing, and just not knowing it!

Thanks,

Hello Triinu,

I installed this update on one of my test NS 6 boxes, and it seems that the following noted updated is in fact NOT included/updated:

The AltirisNSCabInstaller.exe is not updated to include new versions of the CAB files. N/A 2026209

I checked with our RPS/AE and he confirmed this; do you know if this update is in fact available, in particular the ComponentONE VSFlex ActiveX control?  There is something wrong with the signature on this ActiveX and it won't install by default; and in turn is causing me quite a lot of headaches!

Thanks,
Kyle
